    This is kind of an odd question tbh. But give me Shaq 5-6 of those years he'll probably give you at least 2 rings.

    Depends on the team, if I got the current Charlotte Bobcats, give me KG, that gives me a lot of time to put a great team around him; if I have a decent team, give me Shaq because he'd probably get me a ring.

    People tend to forget that those Lakers teams and that Heat team were stacked and coached by Phil Jackson/Pat Riley. Shaq by himself with Paul Silas coaching wouldn't get you a ship in 5 years.

    The expectations are visible behind Dwight Howard in LA

    I want instant guaranteed championships assuming I have a good enough cast? Give me a prime Shaq over anybody in league history not named Michael Jordan.

    Shaq between 98-03 (6 YRS)

    79.2 Win shares (13.2 a yr on avg), .255 WS48


    KG 98-08 (11 YRS)

    139.6 Win shares (12.69 a yr on avg), .206 WS48


    Basically if the # of yrs was close I'd pick Shaq without question, But this is for about DOUBLE the seasons, So i'd pick KG..

    Give me Shaq during his prime! They changed the rules for him. MDP.. most Dominant player during that stretch. With KG you still had to worry about Duncan etc.

    Yeah but KG didn't have anyone ever on the level of Penny, Wade or Kobe.

    But in this case you would be getting twice as many years of KG.

    Hardly. If I pick KG, I still have to go out and find someone to carry my team and by my #1 option offensively. If I get Shaq all I need is an all-star SG, OR PG/SF. It's not going to be that hard for me to acquire one all-star perimeter player to create some offense and dump it into Shaq. KG's career was great but Shaq's peak was unstoppable.
